"When Emma-Jane Taylor asked us to be part of her podcasts helping to give young people a voice, we didn’t hesitate to say ‘yes’. After touring schools with our anti-bullying song ‘Sticks and Stones and Mobile Phones’ and seeing first hand how bullying affects young people, we were pleased to hear of the work Emma-Jane is doing to raise awareness for bullying especially as it is a subject we can all relate too personally. Emma-Jane was a knowledgeable and welcoming interviewer and we were honoured to be asked, thank you Emma-Jane." - United Vibe Jan 2020
